and Dagenham and the surrounding areas highlighted by particular difficulties in accessing
mainstream services due to language and cultural barriers.
CAS aims to fight against knowledge gaps, disease, poverty and social exclusion among the
whole disadvantaged communities in general and Africans and French speaking
communities in particular through a common effort to relieve poverty, advance education
and improve access, and to provide facilities in the interest of social welfare, recreational,
leisure, and support with the object of improving the conditions of life for these people.

multicultural community, that provides inclusive services, promotes community cohesion
and works for community well-being and social inclusion.
